Body of lies

Thanks to Mattel (and Hugh Hefner) for
fifty years of unrealistic expectations.

What psychic could possibly gauge
How this freak would become all the rage?
With plenty of plastic
She's looking fantastic
So Barbie's not telling her age.

LOL!!!! I never owned or wanted a Barbie doll and neither did my daughter. Tomboys like us don't need that sort of thing. Now she's made in China.

Thanks, Kay. I was more into the Visible Man and Woman though I have to admit in retrospect that, like Barbie and Ken, they were still missing a few key parts.
